    It’s hard to tell from those pictures. From the size of his paws on the fence, I’d say it’s a medium to large size dog, probably more than 30 lbs. You should just go check him out. 🙂

    Is it possible the pics were taken at different times? How old is the dog suppose to be?

    He looks bigger/older in the bottom picture. The facial features are different.

    He does look like he might have some welshie in him!! Or possible Airedale since he looks a bit bigger.

    I’m guessing he’s about 30-35 pounds now, but it says he’s a puppy, and his paws like pretty big, so I’m guessing he’s going to get bigger!

    He’s so cute!!!

    Also, in case you’re wondering (and if he does in fact have Airedale in him), they can get to about 70 lbs (maybe more)!

    It’s possible too that it’s just the angle of the pictures. I have a similar shot of my dog when she was younger and she looks way older in that pic close up at an angle of her face.
    But the main reason why I said different times is because the facial features look different to me.

    Can you contact them to ask?

    In the first pic he does look like he could be part Airedale. I grew up with Airedales, and they always weighed under 65 pounds. I always thought of them as a “medium” sized dog.

    He’s very cute!!! Looks like he has a good personality 🙂

    Aw, he’s a cutie! I agree he looks like he has some Airedale. My aunt had two while I was growing up, and they were great with kids. They did get fairly large, though, I think about 50 lbs or so. I hope you go see him!

    I LOVE Airedales. Ours were amazing with me, my brother and all little kids – the female especially loved loved loved kids. She only got out of the yard once or twice, but each time, my mom found her at the playground up the street from our house (I kid you not LOL), just playing with the kids. Our female was fine with cats and dogs, but would chase small animals outside like squirrels/rodents, but, that’s in their nature. The male was fine with other animals, until he was “jumped” by a husky at about a year and a half old, after that he was very animal aggressive – but I think that was due to the fight, as he was fine with other dogs before. He was never people aggressive though (including toddlers, little kids).

    I’ve known several other Airedales and Airedales mixes, and they all seemed to be fine with other animals.

    They are very smart, and willful, so I would definitely do obedience training, and establish yourself/FH as the pack leader. I think they are great dogs though. Very loyal. FH and I think we want a smaller dog to start with, but if we wanted something larger, I would get an Airedale. They also hardly shed at all, which is nice.

    Here’s a pic of our female, Lacey (I named her when I was 5 years old lol), she was only 8 weeks old when this picture was taken – meeting the resident grumpy old man cat for the first time. As you can probably guess from the cat paw in the picture, right after my dad snapped this shot, poor Lacey got popped in the nose by the cat! That cat made sure the puppy knew who was boss haha 😉
